Jason’s Answer

Hi Zenia,

I went to the Rochester Institute of Technology RIT, and they have a variety of computer and networking related programs. One thing that I found valuable was the CO-OP program, which are typically paid internships. I would highly suggest a school that has this type of program, as it lets you obtain some real world experience.

Something that may help, would be to research the various computer related jobs that are available, and see which of those appeal to you. A search for "top computer related jobs" should give you some good results, like this 10 Best Technology Jobs article. From there you can see which schools offer programs in that field.

Jason recommends the following next steps:

Do so research to see which computer related field interests you

Here's the best reference, for choosing top Universities in Engineering and Technology:

When applying for Universities, you should work with a Counselor and interview current students at those Universities, to learn more about the University life and whether it's a good fit for you. Also, it's important to apply to multiple Universities, so that you can evaluate the Financial-Aid package and make the right choice for you.

Best of luck!

As technology is impacting all of as we enter the 4th industrial revolution, you will find good programs in many universities to choose from. I have been impressed with ASU as one example because of the commitment of the university around technology where they have been voted as the most innovative in the U.S. over the last few years. In addition to learning on campus, I would supplement this through your own development with YouTube offering some great free classes and webinars.

Hi Zenia-

first it depends on what you want to do. You can do programming, computer engineering or work with customers who buy the technology by selling or post sales and setting up the customer with what they bought.

Generally 4 year universities are a good place to start when looking at the best technology schools. There’s MIT, Stanford, Harvard that are expensive and very competitive to get into. Then there’s a hidden gem like San Jose State that is in the heart os Silicon Valley that is close to Stanford and 1/2 the cost. SJSU is a great school.

Hope this helps.

There are lot of great schools out there. I would focus not on the best ranked but which school would you be the most successful at. Think about cost of the school, cost of living expenses, your social support system and where you would thrive for at least 4 years. You really need to get a masters degree so another 2 years of education. I have a lot of friends who went to so called not so good schools and ended up with great jobs
